Sanders and the last debate

Sanders was much better in the last debate and he did not praise Hillary or said "I agree with the Secretary".  I asked my American Government class to watch the debate and only one thought that Hillary one (most thought that Sanders won).  Students also thought that Hillary seemed fake although I reminded them that people are more harsh in judging females in any post than men (overall, female professors get far more negative student evaluations than men).  But Sanders also praised Winston Churchill.  He is not only lacking on Palestine: he also has been weak vis-a-vis the Gun lobby in Vermont and took an unprincipled position on the subject in his career (although I support the Second the Amendment, but not for the same reason as American conservatives: for the very reasons which was intended by the framers).
